Ontario responds to Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission report | LIVE

CA, 03 May 2021
Ontario's Minister of Long-Term Care, Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, is expected to hold a press conference Monday in response to the release of the final report of the province's Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission.

The final report as well as a damning new auditor general’s report also underscored a months-long Global News investigation that found the Ontario government failed to provide homes with adequate infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures, didn’t hire staff fast enough and failed to take action on de-crowding older homes.
